Adidas XT White 5.0
« on: November 28, 2018, 10:01:38 AM »

Hi all just thought I would share this Adidas XT white bat. I purchased this from VKS in Aug. I love the duckbill shape and the size of the bat for its weight which is 2.76 and the bat boasts 36mm edges and has minimal concaving.

Not sure who makes the Adidas bats but performance wise its a very good bat, grains are clean and even with just a marble effect stain in the playing area but has no impact on performance from what if found so far in mallet and old ball work. Thin but oval handle which for a bat of this weight is not an issue but if you had or used heavier weights the handle would have to be made thicker. XT 5.0 is G5 English willow and this is almost a slightly off white colour in the main, not sure if its heartwood or what it is but doesnt seem to have any negative impact.

Anyway here are a few pics, I also picked up the Adidas XT 2.0 batting pads and some XT Elite gloves and must say the quality of the Adidas softs is up there with the best I have ever used. Look forward to giving this kit a little run out at winter nets

What isn't to like about the adidas kit.
Bats I think are FS Sondhi, but might be ss. Either way, that looks a lovely one.

The softs are the business.

I don't know how to put this, but, I'm kind of a big deal.
